I would say from personal experience that if you had 25-50 people, that is quite a crowd for a tuba recital. A very prominent tubist freind of mine's undergrad recital had only 12 people and mine had about 10-15. A lot of tuba stuff seems underattended. I would say on the other hand, most tuba recitals today are some of the most prepared and best executed recitals being given. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself on stage and maybe helped to change the perspective of the tuba as a musical instrument for a few people!
